Something is different this season. Although you can’t quite put your finger on it, something is just missing from your home heating. Maybe you’re having trouble getting your home to warm up, getting it to stay warm, or you just can’t justify the price of your heating for what you’re getting. No matter what is going on, our professionals can help you work through it.
When we talk to homeowners about improving their heaters, their first thoughts are about things like repair or replacement services. While either of these services might be necessary for your heating in Clute, TX, it’s not the only thing you can do to help out your heater. Start out by trying some of these tips.
How to Improve Your Home Heating
Here are a few ways you can try to improve your heating this season if it’s just not cutting it.
Schedule That Maintenance Appointment (It’s Not Too Late)
The first thing you should do is schedule a maintenance appointment with us. Maintenance isn’t one of those “nice to have” extras. It’s absolutely essential.
Maintenance is something that we consider a non-negotiable because it does the heavy lifting when it comes to preparation. You want to make sure that your entire heating system is calibrated and ready to run before the height of the season. It’s the easiest way to make sure you avoid unexpected repairs and breakdowns.
Freshen Up Your Filter
Your air conditioner’s filter should be replaced once every three months. If you’re not doing this, you’re not setting your system to work well. We suggest that you swap out this filter now and then recommend putting a calendar reminder on your phone to do this at least once a season. A fresh filter helps your HVAC system help you.
Rethink Your Thermostat
Sometimes you just need to take things back to the drawing board with your home’s thermostat.
If you’ve had your thermostat for close to a decade, then we suggest upgrading the unit. Smart and Wi-Fi thermostats outperform any other type of system on the market. It’s a great idea to invest in a new one to improve heating performance.
If you have a new model, you might just want to rethink its location. Putting your thermostat in a bad spot does affect HVAC efficiency. Moving it can make things much better.
Consider How Your Needs Have Changed
Your needs probably have changed over the course of the time you’ve had your heater. If you’ve added on to your home or even added family members, you might want a heater that can do more for you. This is a good time to pick up the phone and discuss a heater replacement with one of our professionals.
Factor in Your Indoor Air Quality
We know that you might not think of indoor air quality when heating is brought up, but they go hand in hand. If your heating seems to be suffering although your heater isn’t the culprit, then it means that it’s important to check the other sources. The problem could be your ductwork or even the cleanliness of your air at home.
